When Two Worlds Collide

When Two Worlds Collide

When I reached the barn at the top of the hill, I spotted Jill and walked over to say good morning. Right before breakfast, she had told me that she had been thinking and didn’t feel the name “Perseus” quite fit the incredible little horse that […]

Just The Two of Us

Just The Two of Us

Once I had walked about the ranch, documenting as much as I could in photos on my phone, I walked over to spend the rest of the quiet morning with Perseus. Preferring to be on the safe side (no pun intended?), I decided to sit […]

A Moment For Eternity

A Moment For Eternity

I sat with my back against the wood panels of the round pen, taking in everything that had just happened and reflecting on my life these past few years. When I lost Eternity, we were living back in the city and were finding it difficult to make ends meet. After she was gone, I knew that it would be impossible for us to adopt another horse and be able to afford to board him or her in the city. Not only had I lost my best friend… but my dreams seemed to be choked by my circumstances. The pain of losing Eternity and letting my dreams fade away was too great for my heart to carry.

Meet Your Partner

The morning came early as the sun began peeking out from behind the mountains, coloring the ranch in beautiful pastel shades. I awoke to the melodious songs of the birds and the trickle of the spring water making it’s way into the pond. As I emerged […]

A Time to Retreat

A Time to Retreat

Back in April, I was offered the privilege of being sponsored to attend a three-day Women’s Equine Assisted Empowerment Retreat hosted by The Medicine Horse Project. Founded by Jill Starr (founder and former Executive Director of Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue), The Medicine Horse Project’s mission is dedicated to the rehabilitation of rescued horses and the healing of mind, body and spirit these horses impart to humankind. Glamp, Pamp and Re-vamp is their first retreat to be offered at the rescue’s most tranquil location in the countryside of Caliente, CA. It was here that we were each able to disconnect from the outside world, free of reception and wi-fi, and reconnect with the life in the way God intended for us to enjoy. (more…)
